Planning to remodel your kitchen? Then you already have an idea of the design and things you want to stay and go. However, have you ever asked yourself the most important question? How much will it cost?
You can start researching prices, creating your budget, and even track your expenses from start to end. Unfortunately, no matter how you stick to your budget or find the best deals, you still won’t get the exact numbers. Instead, you can start with a floor and ceiling price plan. Check this table budget out:
|Kitchen Item||Estimated Cost|
|Kitchen Cabinets||$6,000 – $10,000|
|Dishwasher||$600 – $1,000|
|Range/Stove||$350 – $3,000|
$700 – $1,500
|Flooring||$350 – $1,000|
|Paint||$150 – $2,000|
Are the numbers too high? We’ve come up with some tips on how to save on your remodeling.
You don’t have to break the bank when remodeling. Sometimes, all you have to do is replace some parts to make your kitchen look and feel new. You can start by replacing your outdated kitchen tools or appliances. If your kitchen has been in monochrome for years, add some stylish and colorful new items that you can also use every day.
If you want to go big, try changing your cabinetry or your doors. Better yet, remove cabinet doors to get the feel of a bigger and more open space.
Avoid custom cabinets and get stock cabinets for your kitchen. Stock cabinets vary in sizes and shapes, so you don’t have to worry if you find the right one.
Stock cabinets are also easy to repaint; some unfinished ones are even cheaper. DIY your cabinet paint to get the color you want and, while you’re at it, change the handles to match your interior, too.
Wait to Paint
Yes, one of the essential parts of remodeling your kitchen or any room in your home is the pain. The color of your wall or walls can make or break your entire interior design, so choose the color wisely.
We also recommend that you wait until the price rates drop before you call a paint service company. Of course, you can do it on your own, but if you don’t have any experience, then you might as well leave it to the experts. Paint jobs price drops during the winter because they have to fill in between projects so take advantage of this and wait until winter.
Stainless steel appliances are $100 more expensive than white or colored ones. Create a classic and timeless corner in your kitchen by choosing white appliances.
Focus on Your Faucet
Your faucet and your sink should be in great shape, especially if you’re moving in and remodeling your kitchen. However, if the drain is still in good shape, then you might focus your budget and attention on replacing your faucet. Choose a functional but well-designed faucet that can add more drama to your overall kitchen look.
Vinyl Sheet on the Floor
Flooring is one of the most expensive parts of kitchen remodeling. However, one of the best options for a tight budget are vinyl sheets. There are inexpensive, durable, and easy to clean compared to hardwood and tile.
Don’t Forget to Measure
Sometimes, we get overwhelmed on buying and changing stuff that we often forget to measure items. This is important, especially if you have a small kitchen where the appliances also serve as decor. So measure and measure again to make sure that everything fits and works.
When in Doubt, Ikea
Check out the clearance room in Ikea for some cabinets and another kitchen decor. Take the time to scout for items on sale and, of course, make sure that what you buy fits!
